Which Can-Am Three-Wheeled Motorcycle is Right for You?

Written by David Glassman

If you're planning on buying a Can-Am three-wheeled motorcycle, you might have discovered there are several options to choose from. That's good news, because options are always nice. But it's bad news because it can be hard to pick one from all the great choices. Fortunately, your Can-Am dealer can help you locate the right one for your needs and goals.

There are specific selling points and features to each model, and you'll want to consider whether recreational, touring, cruiser touring, or something else would be right for you. Can-Am offers two distinct varieties of their three-wheeled motorcycles, which are the Ryker and the Spyder. Both can give an exciting, on-road experience that's completely unlike their two-wheeled counterparts. They can also be excellent choices for those who can't or don't want to ride a standard motorcycle. Here are some great Can-Am options to consider.

An Overview of the Can-Am Ryker

The Ryker's UFit System™ offers plenty of adjustable ergonomic features like foot pegs, brakes, and handlebars. That means the riding system can be totally designed to match the build and size of the rider. Naturally, that adds to both the comfort and the safety of the Ryker. All the adjustments are tool-free for additional convenience. The Ryker is also very easy to customize, so you can add and remove accessories with ease. You can also swap out colors and switch out panels, so the Ryker can truly be what you want it to be for your personal style.

The optimized center of gravity and lower seating position make this Can-Am vehicle easy to handle. Both riding experience and confidence on the road are improved and enhanced. The Rotax engine is designed to deliver superior gas mileage, extreme reliability, and high performance, and depending on the model you'll get a Rotax 600 or 900 ACE engine. There are so many ways to customize the Ryker and make it your own, it's hard to imagine you'd want anything else. But that's not the only great vehicle Can-Am can offer you.

An Overview of the Can-Am Spyder

The Can-Am Spyder has display technology that's designed for the rider. The touring and cruising touring models both feature a large, panoramic, 7.8-inch wide LCD color display that's easily visible in all conditions. With BRP Connect, you'll have everything in one place, too. You can get all your vehicle-optimized smartphone apps, like music, weather, and navigation. The Rotax 1330 ACE engine is powerful and efficient to move you down the road, and the in-line triple cylinder configuration will give you maximum torque in each and every gear.

This Spyder's engine is low-maintenance, fuel efficient, and strong. When it's coupled with the vehicle stability system for optimum control, you really can't go wrong. This system offers anti-lock brakes, stability control, and traction control, so you can increase the confidence you have on the road.

Which Can-Am is Right for You?

One of the best things about Can-Am Vehicles is that they come in several different models you can choose from. Some of our favorites include:

Spyder F3

A sport cruising option, the Spyder F3 is an excellent starting point for fun and comfort riding on a three-wheeled motorcycle that will offer you high performance.

Spyder F3-T

This F3-T is a cruiser touring model, and offers additional cargo space and wind protection. It's a great choice for longer rides, or for someone who's thinking about a cross-country trip.

Spyder F3-S

The F3-S is similar to the F3-T, but it offers style elements and higher performance, along with a sport mode you can engage for more fun.

Spyder RT

The RT is a touring model, and it offers plenty of extra storage, a smooth ride, and a long fuel range so you can take it wherever you need to go.


The Ryker is a recreational option, so it's not as comfortable for long trips as the cruiser touring F3-T, but it's still very comfortable and will give you a little bit sportier feel.
